Sky News Australia
It was with great excitement that Beulah’s Executive Director Adelene Teh joined Sky News Real Estate’s The Development last Wednesday to give an insight into Beulah’s much talked about, Southbank by Beulah architecture competition.
The estimated $2 billion dollar project located at the 6,061 sqm BMW Southbank Boulevard site is set to be the largest single phase project in Victoria’s history.
Six of the world’s best architecture firms – MAD Architects, MVRDV, OMA, UNStudio, Bjarke Ingels Group and Coop Himmelb(l)au – partnered with six of Australia’s most renowned studios to collaborate on submissions for the competition, with all designs presented at a symposium in July.
Adelene joined Sky News Australia to talk about Beulah’s vision for the site, also giving further details about each of the six design submissions. Adelene spoke of the desire to create a mixed use lifestyle complex that is alive 24/7, amongst the array of single use residential or commercial buildings that currently occupy Southbank.
The development will boast residential apartments, a luxury hotel, commercial offices, and cultural, retail and entertainment precincts. Each team presented its own unique take on the design brief with blocked towers, spiralling glass facades and an array of greenery highlighting some of the proposed design elements.
The reveal of the winner is set to be announced on August 15.
